expect of us hearing a deal before then. >> well, i certainly expect that now that obama is back in town he'll be trying to broker some sort of a deal with john boehner, the house of representatives, and there will be talks among democrats trying to explore whether they can put forth a new scaled down deal that could get past both the republican minority in the senate and get a vote on the floor of the house of representatives. and i think what the markets have to realize is that if the deal were to pass between now and the end of the year, it would first of all be a much more scaled down version of the grand bargain we've all been hoping for. at most, you will get an extension for the alternative minimum tax, but you would not get a serious delay in the so-called sequester, the automatic spending cuts of $100 billion a year, and most important, you will not get relief on a debt ceiling which potentially sets us up for another big fight, much like we saw in the summer of 2000. >> and we know this fight is a difficult one for the gop. they've dug in their heels. this is an issue that they

-floundered because of how benghazi was handled by the obama administration and handled by the state department. >> i think it was lot more than that. it was a long history of not getting along with john mccain and the moment he had the option, he used it. >> that's exactly right. i think -- hillary clinton iss trying to avoid entering into the susan rice situation where she is under pyre on capitol hill. for now the -- will keep the questions at bay. but come january, when she gets asked to come back to capitol hill, she will have to enter into this situation and answer the questions on capitol hill or else she will risk having a susan rice situation where she gets battered from -- >> put this aside. does she run and could she be a moderate republican? >> i think hillary clinton scares every single republican contender who is thinking about 2016 because if you looked at the primaries she won in 2008, she was winning rustbelt states and winning purple states. she is a real threat to the republican party if they are looking to rebound in four years. >> all right. good to see you. ty. >> thank you. >>>

board writes, "ready for diplomacy" about the impending nomination of john kerry. "mr. kerry shares one of mr. obama's greatest weaknesses: an excessive faith in the potential benefits of engagement with rogue regimes and dictators. in particular, mr. kerry's repeated attempts to foster a dialogue with syrian ruler bashar al assad offer a case study of how such diplomacy can go wrong. mr. kerry's dedication to dialogue even with u.s. enemies makes some sense for a secretary of state. but mr. obama's new cabinet could also benefit from the balance provided in the first term by figures such as hillary rodham clinton and robert m. gates who took a more skeptical view of engagement and favored steps such as the surge of troops in afghanistan." richard haass, i mean, i can't square that up with john kerry where john kerry's coming from. >> i can't square up that editorial. the surge in afghanistan seems to me to be one of the more ill-advised things the united states has done over the last few years. plus engagement is fine to try. we ought to, for example, try a negotiated approach to iran
